I am proud to say that both my son and I have served in the U.S. Army. Actually, my son, John Hunter, is currently active duty in the U.S. Army. He has just completed training as a 94R, Avionic And Survivability Equipment Repairer. He began his Army career in August 2015 as an infantryman. He was assigned to the 101st Airborne Division at Fort Campbell, Kentucky. He deployed to Mosul, Iraq, while stationed with the 101st Airborne. He has completed and awarded the Air Assault Badge. He is just graduating from his new training and is heading to Fort Hood, Texas.
I served as WAC (WAC was ended in 1978, and female soldiers became regular Army) in the U.S. Army from 1976-1980 as a medic and administrative assistant. I was stationed at Walter Reed Medical Center and then went to Germany and stationed with 128th Combat Support Hospital. After my term of service was completed, I began working for the federal government and retired after 30 years.
My dad, Harry Boltz Jr. was a World War II veteran and spent his time in northern Africa and Italy with the 86th Ordinance Company. He has since passed but was very proud of his service. Our family has members that have been in U.S. Army, U.S. Navy, U.S. Marines and U.S. Air Force.
Thanks for remembering current and past military members.
